Corolla Raceway – Best Outer Banks Go Karts

In the northern outer banks sits Corolla Raceway. A Family fun gem located in the beautiful town of Corolla. We visited the Outer Banks a couple years ago and it truly is a fantastic family atmosphere that is a lot of fun.

At Corolla Raceway you will find three different go karting options for different age and size of kids/adults. I love the fact that Corolla Raceway offers Junior karts for the youngsters. Most of the time the younger kids get left out due to height or age. If your child is 46″ or taller, they can race the junior karts!

Along with the go karts they can play in the arcade or bang around on the bumper cars! If you get hungry there are plenty of restaurants around. We ate at La Dolce Vita right next door. Great Italian food with fantastic service!

The beach is fun but, some days you need a break.

Maybe you got a really bad sunburn?

Maybe a crab bit your but? Whatever excuse you need to get away and race some go karts works for me!

When finished racing there is an arcade and mini golf to cap off a really fun day.
